car   Automatic Transmission Cooler problem 1
Failure Date: 05/01/2004

Transmission leakage. . Axel fluid leakage. . This is the third vechile that this dealership has put us in in 15 months!!the truck we have now isnt safe and they refuse to fix it and they are responsible because they did not give us a warranty like they told us when we bought truck in April.

car   Automatic Transmission Cooler problem 2
Failure Date: 04/12/2003

Transmission overheats. As near as I can tell, from reading the numerous complaints on message boards, the problem is due to two possible things. A bad torque converter (frequent problem)and/or clogged cooling system lines as the lines and passageways are too narrow and filter is insufficient.
